Put Temmerath, originally from Laos, has worked at Midway BBQ in Buffalo, SC for nearly sixteen years. His old friend, Midway manager Jay Allen, hired him to be the kitchen's jack of all trades. Put oversees the making of 100-gallon pots of hash, the prepping of smoked barbecue shoulders, and many of the restaurant's vegetable sides. Allen brags, "There's no eighteen or twenty-year-old here that can keep up with him."
